    Hey Bill,


    Oops, I just realized that the MainStage template can be used in Automap without requiring Logic. Still, I'm not sure where I can find that template. I checked the Novation website and found one for the Nocturn but not the Impulse 49. Could you help me out?


    All the best,

    Hi Phil


    I just cycled through the templates on the Impulse 49 until I got to Main Stage.


    Do you not have Main Stage as one of the selectable options in your Impulse?

    Hi Bill,


    Oops, my bad, I found it. Your solution seems to be working perfectly, so until Novation comes with a firmware update I guess we're good to go. Thanks a lot for your help, now let's go make some music!


    All the best,

    This is the key: the Novation Impulse 49 does not carry enough power down the USB pipeline. I had the same problem for months - hit a few keys on my keyboard which would play the midi notes on Logix X software instruments - after a while it would just cut out.


    The solution i found worked was -  i just bought a cheap independant USB powered hub. Like this (bellow) works perfectly fine now. can press all keys on my novation keyboard and all midi notes deliver to Logix X and it never cuts out.


    I'm using Logic X running on Yosemite with a New Mac Pro trashcan. Also works with my Mac 4.1
